It will never not be hilarious to me that Green Bay continues to ruin Rodgers’ career with hilariously dumb head coaches.

There’s a (female) Bears fan here who has called Rodgers a motherfucker at least a half dozen times. I love it.

Aside from the similarities of those seasons (and their draft position), you can't compare Stafford and Smith. Stafford has produced on bad teams and average-ish teams year in and year out.

Re: Worthy of mention, too obscure for own thread

It’s all a matter of personal taste but the 70s and 80s were the pinnacle of TV theme songs. Knight Rider and Miami Vice were cool if you like techno synths, Taxi’s smooth jazz theme is iconic and even something like the cheese of Welcome Back, Kotter is better than anything today.
